New Rosebud Sioux Tribe president sworn in

Posted: Updated:

ROSEBUD, S.D. (AP) - The Rosebud Sioux Tribe has sworn in a new president and several new council members.

Cyril "Whitey" Scott was sworn in as the tribe's new president during a ceremony at tribal headquarters Tuesday. He beat three-term president Rodney Bordeaux in a narrow victory last month.

Bordeaux had been one of the longest serving presidents for the Rosebud Sioux Tribe.

The Rosebud Sioux Tribal Council is made up of 24 elected positions. The elected positions include president, vice president, secretary, treasurer and 20 district representatives.

The president, vice president and 20 district representatives serve three year terms. The secretary and treasurer are elected for two-year terms.
